You'll want to head to Steep Rock Kayak And Canoe to say hello to the friendly locals.\nThe three adorable goats who roam here, Hopper, Pogi, and Willy, will put a smile on your face.\nThe shop is a secret paradise you'll never want to leave. In addition to the cute animals, there is Pete's Place, where you can eat ice cream or rent boats for the afternoon.\nIt has everything you could want in the summertime.
